Tiree Community owned and run responsible camping service.
We have a very fragile but beautiful environment of machair grassland and dune systems, here on Tiree, many of which carry SSSI designations. Due to their fragility, they do not stand up to continued use by motor vehicles and can become damaged very quickly. Tiree is also well known for its wildlife, in particular the many species of waders that are found here. At certain times of the year we have many ground-nesting birds, which can easily be disturbed by vehicles.
To ensure this was all protected Tiree took the decision to set up the Croft Camping Scheme run by the Ranger Service on behalf of the Crofters and island residents and has been running successfully for over a decade.
By using a croft site, or the Wild Diamond campsite at Balinoe and marked day-parking areas around the island, you are helping us protect our environment and wildlife for future generations to enjoy.
